Hello...

Do you have your own strategy to fight with the downswing?

Recently, I've won almost 10 games in a row (SnG), then lose over 10 games in a row... I don't know, what I did wrong or something... But what I've noticed, that I can't manage with downswing and its result - tilt...

What do you do with downswing & tilt ?

Just play your game like you usually do,...and eat a few Polski ogorkis...

It's like the weather,.....sunny days are ahead...

...or maybe what you really want are 'rainy days'....where you're getting showered with chips...

If you try to fight it or change your game,...it'll bite you in the a$$ even worse Big Smile

Polskie ogórki (Polish cucumbers) ?? Are you familiar with them? You're almost as my wife - she also eats cucumbers when she's sad Tongue

No, I don't change my game... but I guess, what happened... 10 WIN then 10 LOSE...

i have this strategy, dunno how about u, but works fine for me: when i'm running hot- i just ply as usual & am super proud of myself (at that moment i start to think that i will definitely win my first million this year)- when i'm on a downswing, i lose my whole bankroll- politely encourage players at the table to fcuk off, and leave the table in tears...

My Dad was Polish.... He used to buy pickles from the store that had labels on the jars that read:

'Polski Ogorki'

They were delicious... Big Smile

Winning 10 SnGs in a row in some poker rooms brings you 5000 or even 25.000$, play there.

I think the best strategy is to simply set an amount of buy ins that you afford to lose in a single session...

If you recognize that you are on tilt my advice would be to stop playing for couple of days, it's healthy for your bankroll!

What do you do with downswing & tilt ?


What to do after a bad beat?
Curse the fish who beat you in your mother language - check
Stand up and shout at the people next to you -check
Continue playing, but now AGRESSIVE PLAY -check
Lose more money -check
Blaim it on the fish -check
Curse the fish in your mother language -check
Stand up and shout ...

Viscous circle
Evil

Sure nice thing to try....

but just use the power switch of your PC and stop playing and restart another day

Just take a break ... is the only thing to do when you face a downswing

G'day Amigo's

I just want to say that I have personally been on a downswing and I have had to really take a step back and catch my breath. I even had to take a couple of small breaks in order to fight tilt.
I know when I start to feel angry about a donk nailing me I need to take a break.
I do recommend taking heads to clear ones head.
